I tend to prefer album art with soft textured warm almost rustic designs, which is strange because it’s the complete opposite to my own art & photography which is lurid and psychedelic.
Anyhoo, here are a few favourites. all of these albums I’d highly recommend, if the covers intrigue you then search em up! :D

Tindersticks - waiting for the moon (2003)
Image

Caravan palace - panic (2012)
Image

Peter Bjorn & John - writers block (2006)
Image

Andy shauf - the neon skyline (2020)

"Oh yeah!"
Blue Serge, the title track, Morter, and Hardest Head are all great. Kinda funny to read that the label wanted them to sound more like NIN for the record when I, as a younger fan, always thought it reminded me of the kind of stuff Infected Mushroom would later make.
Speaking of which, IM have a consistent track record of producing awesome album artwork:

This one is beautiful. I find I'm drawn to album covers that utilize shades of red.

I'm quite fond of the art for Gary Numan's "Berserker" album:

Maybe a bit of a cliché on a Boards forum but, Geogaddi. It's strangely hypnotizing and so mysterious. Also the color combinations are so, primal? Never mind the symbolism!

That he is :D ! "Music For The Next Millennium" is still one of the finest DnB albums I've ever heard, and he's the first artist I recommend when people ask me for DnB recs (which is never lol). The aforementioned Paradox (Dev Pandya) does fantastic work as well. Big thanks to Rockstar Leeds for introducing me to Omni Trio.

Other cool DnB album covers:

Look closely and you can see this one was made in MS paint :wink:

It turns out most of the flaming lips artwork and album covers look like they’re intended to be printed BIG! Some incidental art for albums you could put on a poster, my definition of eye-candy! :wink:
A Few examples:

I've got a new found appreciation for Tame Impala's 'The Slow Rush' cover. I think it fits the music perfectly. Can’t stop looking at it! :D

I really like how the cover art for the "Team Silent" era Silent Hill soundtracks really capture the horror style of each game.

Silent Hill 2: Internal and abstract
Image
Silent Hill 3: External and realistic
Image
Silent Hill 4: mystical and folklore inspired

Jon Anderson - Olias of Sunhillow (1976)

I don’t think there is any album cover quite like this!

Have to say, if this art catches your attention.....listen to the music. You won’t regret it. :wink:
Spiritual, psychedelic, atmospheric fantasy driven prog!
